What Size Balls for Slam Ball?


My husband and I are athletic types, aggressive CrossFitters and need to pick up some new slam balls.

1) What size ball(s) should we get for slam ball?

2) Do you have a favorite manufacturer other than D-Ball?

Re: What Size Balls for Slam Ball?

I like my basketballs filled with sand. Make the smallest hole that will take a funnel, use a tire plug and patch kit to seal it up. If you do it well it will hold air to control bouncy-ness. Mine are 10kg and they bounce maybe an inch or 2 if you slam them hard, just enough to catch it. They make for some hard work.

There's more detailed instructions on making those slammers but it's pretty simple. Then if you happen to break one (mine gets slammed hard on concrete and so far so good) you're only out about 5 bucks for a cheap basketball.
